Well the Eibach springs went on today. If anyone in northeast PA needs a good shop and cheap, let me know. $150 installed. These guys do a ton. I won't put their website here since they arent a sponsor, but if you are in the area and want their info PM me.

Car doesn't seem to be pull or be out of alignment.

anyway, let me know you thoughts

Clean. I just did mine last week. I really wish I could have got those style rims on my Koup SX, those have a cleaner look in my opinion. That's the only thing I was kinda iffy about on the koup sx was the rims. Anyway looks good.

really nice man... the only thing preventing me from doing this is the alignment problems I keep reading about... how does the car drive?

Thanks again everyone. I haven't taken it for an alignment yet and not sure I'm going to. Drives straight as an arrow. I read the issues, I think it was buffalo was having and I have to say I have none of those issues.

Thanks shattered!

Matemorh... Throw some pics up. I live the ride as well. Car just seems to "sit" better if that makes sense. And for the price!! I paid $165(usd) shipped from amazon and $150 installed... $315 total! That's what some places are selling the springs alone for. I'm really glad I did this one.

Sorry Beast, no pics! and since the car is going to the body shop this week I'll post some pics after the repair! Nice price! Amazone do not ship to Can!?!? So far it cost 300$ for the spring 40$ for brocker fees and the aligment!

Looks good beast, glad to hear you don't have any issues. After this winter I may go back to stock, not sure yet. My car drives perfectly straight with the wheel at 12 o'clock but once i let go it will immediately start to pull to the right, more than from the normal crown of the road. Your still on stock tires and rims right? I think you will be fine and it may be a culprit of my issue. Anyway, sorry to ramble... nice looking car man!

Thanks man. Yeah still stock rims and tires. Tire will get replaced with a better option when these need to be replaced and the I really enjoy the stock rims look and not planning on replacing them. However i might paint them a hair darker. Not sure.

That's why I told my girlfriend that she isn't allowed to ever even SIT in the drivers side seat :D
